Originally from Arlington Heights, Illinois, I started playing golf at a very young age. Growing up with a teaching professional as a dad, golf was an easy career path for me to follow. I attended the University of Nebraska, Lincoln and studied Professional Golf Management. After graduating in 2009, I became a Class A Member of the PGA of America and began my career down in Phoenix at Desert Mountain. The 2020 season will be my fourth at Forest Highlands and first as Lead Assistant.
Through my career I have worked at several private clubs and been able to observe and give many individual and group lessons. Creating interest in the game for new golfers and keeping that interest for existing golfers is what I strive for as a golf professional. Creating a plan for students to get better and enjoy playing the game is my mission.
